So, explain how this is negative but the attacks on McCain aren't.

So far, McCain's "negative" ads have been issue driven.
It's not wrong to point out one's opponent's political shortcomings.
Real negative campaigning involves trashing an opponent's character unfairly, which we do see a lot of, but so far not in this campaign.

2 threads started by Pro-Obama or Anti McCain members worried that "negative" ads are going to hurt McCain?
If it is not very smart or if ya'll think it is going to hurt McCain, you should be encouraging this activity, being that you are for Obama.
If the enemy is planning on shooting himself in the foot, you don't warn him to stop, you just let it happen.
I happen to like McCain's ads. Very informative, and I don't see anything negative. But some people think any criticism of Lord Messiah Obama is an attack, just like some see any criticism of Obama as racist.
I believe that McCain was saying that celebrity does not equal substance and Obama's substance is a very big issue.
As for McCain's relationship with the Hilton's, that would be their business.
